There's no shame in standing up
And fighting for what you believe in
I could only hope that your firing squad
Is not trained intently on massacring me.

Hold out for far too long without a single word
And you'll fall back on what you feel and what you know
Intuition is your proxy and your heart is a secondary notion
My existence is nothing to you now.

Take your paper hearts and cut them up
Let them fall out your bedroom window
And blow out into the evening sky
Take your paper love and cut it up
Let it fall out your bedroom window
And blow out to float free and die

I sought to make what I could of this
But came up broken and empty handed.
I could only dream of happy times
When there was no rut I'd fallen in.

I could smile at you tonight across the way
But it'd go off undirected and unnoticed
Intuition is your proxy and you know what it'll say
I'm just a shadow of doubt on the wall of your heart

Take your paper hearts and cut them up
Let them fall out your bedroom window
And blow out into the evening sky
Take your paper love and cut it up
Let it fall out your bedroom window
And blow out to float free and die.
